3. What are cookies and similar technologies?
There are different types of cookies type technologies. These include:
- Cookies: Cookies, web beacons, pixels, tags and similar technologies are small files consisting of letters and numbers that are placed on your device (such as your computer, tablet, mobile or other device) that enable certain features and functionalities of our online services and enables us to collect information from or about your device.
- Adobe flash: We may also use Adobe flash technology (also called “locally stored objects” or “LSOs”). Adobe flash is a technology that can provide cookie-equivalent functionality and is capable of storing information on your device. This information is often stored in a different file to other cookies. This means it has to be managed and deleted in a different way. We explain below how you can do this.
- SDKs: We may also use software development kits (SDKs) on some of our apps which enable us to collect information from your mobile or other device in similar ways. An SDK performs a similar function to a cookie, but is contained within the software for the app that you install on your device.
- Device identifiers: We may also collect your IP address, unique device identifier or create a unique device fingerprint (this is a unique combination of different information from your device so that we can single it out) so we can identify your device. We may then use this in a similar way to cookies.
When this policy refers to “cookies”, this includes cookies, SDKs, device identifiers, pixels, tags, Adobe flash technology, web beacons and other similar technologies we use.
These technologies can be used to recognise when your device does things. For instance, they may recognise when your device visits pages on our or others’ sites, uses parts of an app or when you open emails we send you, or links in technologies.
